Research

My primary research is at the intersection of machine learning and security. I study settings where an intelligent adversary has limited access to perturb data fed into a learned or learning system. The goal of my research is two-fold: to detect attacks and to build/augment learning systems to be more robust to undetected attacks.
In addition, I develop methods for inferring properties of the underlying sensors (whether trustworthy or not) and incorporating that knowledge into the data analysis pipeline.
